Historians gather in Montreal to discuss WWI and French history

About 600 academics from around the world will gather in Montreal this week to discuss the 100th anniversary of WWI as part of a broader theme of War and Peace in French History. Historians attending the 60th Annual Meeting of the Society for French Historical Studies, co-hosted by Concordia University and the Université du Québec à Montreal, will debate France’s role in the war and discuss everything to do with French history from the Medieval period to 2014. Concordia history professor Norman Ingram said, “France and French history plays an absolutely essential, critical and central role in the history of the west.” This is the society’s first gathering in Quebec.
